The challenge this week at Charisma Cardz is Anything Christmas This is my Dandelion Christmas card and it has little step at the front- not sure what you call that kind of card maybe someone can enlighten me. Looking forward to seeing all your lovely Christmas ideas and remember to check out the rest of the DT for some inspiration. AllisonX

The Forever Friends challenge this week is Glitter and the MAWTT is a sketch and open theme so this week I combined the two. I don't know where the time is flying by to but there seems to be the next weeks challenge up by the time I get round to considering the previous week!
So I made a point of making time tonight to do this card for these challenges.
It wasn't till I had put the image on that I realised it had a sentiment so I had to leave the text area off from the sketch and I couldn't cross my string as it hid the sentiment!
There are snowflakes galore and a lovely tree, winter woolies, reindeer head and Christmas baubles ready for download, resize if you want and colour or print onto papers and make lots of wonderful Christmas cards with.
These are a couple of my samples but either check the wesite or the other DT's blogs for their wonderful examples.
I did the planner so it can used year after year and will be a good reminder each year what you bought the previous one.... so it will avoid buying the same present two years running for the same person... like anyone would do that! says me blushing!!!!
Hope you like it and remeber to check out the wonderful Christimas projects from the rest of the DT
The Penny Black Challenge this week is Christmas for the Guys
And I used my trusty PB dog stamp for this and my new snowflake cuttlebug die- which was inspired by Kath and I am so glad now that I bought it.
Hope you are all having a lovely weekend and just to let you know I am sitting here in my new leopard print pj's and dressing gown- and I do look a sight! and no you aint getting any photos of that one!
The theme at Charisma Cardz this week is Merry and Bright We are sponsored by http://www.yournextstamp.com and isn't this a cute image from them Used papers by K& Co, red core card and can't remeber where the sentiment JOY came from as I found it lying about in my stash Looking forward to seeing all your Merry and Creations Have a good day AllisonX
was asked to make an 18th birthday card for someone at work and it had to be girly and pink
EEK.. there is only a threee week window in the year that I do pink and girly so I deliberated long and hard and long and long about this one so I am just hoping it's ok and pink and girly enough
Hope your Sunday is going is well- my day is just running away with me- was at agility this morning and was soo chuffed that Misty went on the see saw all on her own- yeeha, major breakthrough, then by the time I got home and had to take Bud a walk, Misty tagged along too! and here we are quarter to three in the afternoon- better get the finger out and get this wedding card done
The challenge over at Penny Black this week is song titles
so I went about this challenge a bit back to front- instead of picking the song title and then making a card I coloured my PB mouse first then thought what could he hold or look at ... I know .....a star
The next dilema was then to find a suitable song with a star- and I kept thinking Wish Upon a Star and true enough when you look it up it is a song from a Disney Movie by Samantha Mumba
so that's how my card came about.
Am actually supposed to be making a Wedding Card but am waiting for the inspiration to hit me so made this to pass the time until the idea comes to me
Have a great weekend and pleeeaaassseeeea if any of you are.... STOP voting for John and Edward , they just have to get voted out of X Factor this week
The challenge over at Penny Black this week is White on White- everything has to be white except your image- you're allowed to use colour for that
I embossed my card using the snowflake and swiss dots folders and used my PB Christmas dog stamp and added a touch of lilac to his scarf and mounted it on a scalloped circle
Added some lace and a sentiment
The hardest part was actually trying to get a decent photo- its miserable here with rain and very dull and I kept taking either very dark photos of it or ones with a glare- so this is the best of a bad bunch
My name is Allison and I am proud mum to a ten year old German Shepherd, Misty and a two year old rescue collie Ellis.Dogs never cease to amaze me and I am thankful each day for their love and devotion.
When I am not with my dogs I am playing with bits of paper and glue and I hope that you find something on my blog to inspire you .
